Theory of Spin-Orbit Torque

The working of countless electronic devices involves electric and magnetic effects interacting within nanostructured materials. In the phenomenon known as spin

Magnetic Random Access Memory

The program on magnetic random-access memory develops metrology to determine how spin currents can be generated and used to control and manipulate magnetization

Nanomagnet Dynamics

We develop methods and facilities for measuring magnetization dynamics in magnetic nanostructures with a particular emphasis on the emerging needs of future
